Careers

We live and breathe our values. That applies to customers and employees alike. We treat people with respect, trust and care.

You’ll love working at Cogent.

Transparency, honesty and creativity underpin everything we do. Wellbeing is also a big part of our day to day.

Our people are respected and celebrated for who they are. We all have different backgrounds, cultures, skills and perspectives, and we’ve all got a story to tell. We want to hear yours.

The perks

As if collaborating with a bunch of smart, humble (but insanely talented) individuals wasn’t enough, you’ll be bringing ideas to life for some of Australia’s top companies and emerging startups.

To do this, every team member is given the freedom and tools to do their best work, both technically and personally. This means respecting and nurturing your wellbeing, development and happiness at every stage of your journey with us. These are just some of the ways we focus on our people.

Purchased Leave
You get 4 weeks of annual leave a year, but if you need a little more time to sail around the Greek Islands or work on that side project, who are we to argue? You’re able to buy some extra time just because we get it.

Salary Sacrifice
If you’d like to salary sacrifice your laptop, car or something else (that you’re legally allowed to), just let us know! Got a super fancy tax structure? We’ll be able to figure something out.

Flexibility
And we don’t just say it. Need to drop your kids at basketball? Want some zen time at a yoga class? We get it, encourage it and support it… and we’ll always get you home in time for dinner.

Social Events
We genuinely like each other and regularly share a drink or two, play boardgames, brew beer, make sauerkraut or whatever else we feel like!
